Family Type: Heterosexual Couple
State we live in: Washington

dear expectant mother

We feel truly blessed to be considered for this amazing gift. A baby would make our dreams of growing our family come true. We can provide a safe, loving, stable, and happy home for a child.

We want to raise our child to love and respect themselves and others and to always be gracious and kind as they live their life. Our focus will be to encourage them to be well rounded, curious, and always looking for ways to improve and new things to learn. We’ll support the interests our future child may have, including learning to play a musical instrument (we have a piano), sports, STEM topics and museum trips, or nature hikes to learn about our planet firsthand. Our ultimate goal is to raise a positive, educated, and productive citizen.

We will encourage and support whatever their heart desires to help them become their true self. We will ensure our child gets the best education possible. We can’t wait to watch our child experience the world and teach them how to climb trees and swim, watch them make new friends, and read lots of books.

Thank you for taking the time to consider us and learn about our lives. Even if we aren’t chosen by you, we will pray for you and your child’s health.

We feel truly blessed to be considered for this amazing gift. A baby would make our dreams of growing our family come true. We can provide a safe, loving, stable, and happy home for a child.

About Us

We began our life together ten years ago while working at the same tech company. Inseparable at first sight, we’ve grown together to build a warm home with two wonderful pets and with room for the blessings of a child. Josh is a senior technical manager and has worked from home for the last decade with a technical consulting firm. Ines also works from home with the charitable foundation for a major university. We’ve got a strong family base, being blessed with all four of our parents, three sisters, two brother-in-laws, and two nephews. We’re both kids at heart, with a special place in our hearts for Disneyland. It was our first long trip together, the site for our surprise engagement, and the theme of our gorgeous wedding. When not at Disneyland, we love spending time at MLB ballparks or traveling to foreign destinations like Thailand, Malaysia, and Italy.

Our Home & Pets

Four years ago, we moved from a large city to our home in a beautiful valley that sits on a quiet street with large sidewalks that are ideal for riding a bike. The center of our house is a large kitchen and family room. We have three bedrooms, with one dedicated for a baby. Our pets, Archie and Scar, are always roaming together as brothers. We have a large, fenced-in backyard providing a safe environment to enjoy our beautiful summers and a place to build a snowman in the winter. There are walking trails and a community park within a short distance of our home, where we walk Archie regularly, and the schools in our area are highly rated.

Our Extended Family

We are blessed to have a large extended family who are just as excited as we are for a new family member. Josh’s parents live only one exit away, and nearby are two younger sisters, two brothers-in-law, two nephews, and numerous cousins, aunts, and uncles all waiting with open arms. Ines has her parents, a younger sister, and grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

All of our family is very close, and you’ll see us together celebrating birthdays with cake and balloons, baking cookies at Christmas, carving a turkey on Thanksgiving, and enjoying a BBQ on the Fourth of July. We also try to take a family vacation every year. We’ve been everywhere from Rome to China, making some amazing memories along the way, and are planning on continuing the tradition. When we are not spending time together, we all stay in touch by weekly phone calls and daily text messages.

We are looking forward to creating new traditions as a family of three!

What Led Us To Adoption

The first time we talked about having children was on our second date, when we started daydreaming about taking our child to Disneyland. We always planned to provide a great home to a great kid and always wanted to be parents. Adoption fits squarely with our values, and Josh was especially touched by the thought of adoption after learning at a young age that his father was adopted as an infant. We saw firsthand how life changing adoption can be. Within the last year, we’ve taken a serious approach to beginning the adoption process though a lot of reading, prayer, and conversations with other families who have adopted. We look forward to the opportunity to provide a caring and compassionate home to a beautiful baby.
